    Hi I would like someone to start as soon as possible
    I'm a lady that works as a scientist in a hospital and needs help with garden and small renovations.
    The house is close to Westfield shopping centre and Olympic site. Very close to the University of East London (UEL)
    The house is comfortable, has a back garden, situated in a quiet road 6 minutes walk to Stratford station (central line, jubilee line, DLR, BR, Silverlink, Eurostar etc)
    Close to good amenities, supermarket, shopping centre, library, theatre, cinema etc

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Hopefully we will enjoy each others company and learn something useful from each other :-). I am interested in recycling, and different building methods. I hope to build a house in the future using novel techniques

    Help

    I would like someone to start as soon as possible. I would really appreciate finding some carpentry help.

    The help will mainly involve decorating/DIY. But also cleaning the house, gardening, shopping, furniture restoration and whatever else is needed

    I can host people for long periods (6 months +) if needed, and have done on several occaisions.

    I would ideally like someone with some experience, but this is not essential. I just ask that you are fair, honest and decent and uphold the values and ethos of Workaway

    In exchange for free accommodation and food, I would ask 4 hours per day help. If you have experience that would be excellent, if not then as long as you're hard working and quick to learn then I can guide you (I've renovated a few houses before)
    Please feel free to contact me for a chat to discuss in more detail the help required and how we can help each other
    I can accommodate most dietary requirements. I would ask that if you drink alcohol to excess or take drugs, please do not bother to contact me as we will just waste each others time.
